a lot, gop leadership types went to a lumber company in virginia. they wore un-washington clothes and spoke from a podium sandwiched between piles of wood. the anti-washington tone was struck about 30 miles from the nation's capital. the picture was different, but the concept's familiar. the 21-page pledge includes calls for repealing and replacing health care reform. and making the bush tax cuts permanent for everyone. it would also freeze the hiring of federal employees in non-security jobs and roll back spending to 2008 levels, before the stimulus bill, before the bank bailout. the pledge was largely free of pronouncements on the social issues, the kind of talk that tends to scare off independent voters, and there was little about what republicans would do about popular but unsustainable entitlement programs like social security and medicare, no mention of earmarks either. marshala blackburn and kathy morris-rogers next. >>> joining me now, republican congresswoman marsha blackburn of tennessee and cathy mcmorris rodgers of washington state. thank you both so much for coming. i

that rolled into west virginia, and numerous wind reports across parts of new york city. this is the radar now. much calmer conditions today. most of the energy well off to the north and east, and we don't anticipate severe weather with this system. karl is now a major hurricane. category three storm and it's going to slam into mexico this afternoon. back to you guys in new york. >> thanks. >> you bet. >>> well, there's a new sheriff coming to town. the white house says that she'll be keeping a close eye on wall street and the fat cats who gambled away all of those 401(k)s. >> her name is elizabeth warren. this afternoon, the president plans to introduce her as his new special adviser. her goal, set up a consumer protection agency. keep the big banks on the straight and narrow. ed henry is live at the white house this morning. ed, elizabeth warren apparently not afraid to tango with wall street elite. will she have power? >> that is going to be the big question. she's been fearless about taking on the big banks and this obama administration, frankly, in her role as chair of the congressional o

in virginia closing three years after the fed starts moving to phase out light bulbs, ordering government buildings to use fluorescent bulbs to save energy. my next guest thinks that the plan backfired and people are going to lose their jobs from this factory. it's congressman joe barton. this caught our eye. it encapsulate as number of issues out there right now. why are you fighting to save the indan des -- incandescent light bulb? >> they're cheaper, environmentally correct and we think consumers ought to make the correct choice, especially middle and low income americans, they can't afford four, $5 light bulbs when you can get the old fashioned light bulb for 40, 50 cents a pop. martha: but part of the action is to say that the government won't purchase incandescent light bulbs nip. it doesn't mean the rest of us can't. >> it also says it can't be sold as retail in the united states. martha: they can't be sold anywhere after -- when is this going to go into effect? >> 2014. so we want to repeal it. this is indicative of the overreach that the obama administration, mrs. pelosi and majo
